Thiruvananthapuram, Jul 24: Kerala's Gender Park, an autonomous institution under the state social justice department, has invited papers and poster submissions for its international conference on gender equation, scheduled to be held at Kovalam here in November.
Themed 'Gender, Governance and Inclusion', the International Conference on Gender Equality (ICGE) 2015, will look forward to identify priority areas for future focus and action in the area.
The papers, which must be empirically grounded, are expected to reflect the theme, while focussing on work, citizenship, health, masculinity, education, globalisation and social security, and the media, a Gender Park release said here today.
The last date for submission of abstracts is August 30. Selected papers must be submitted in full by September 15, it said. Poster submissions in English are invited from scholars and gender practitioners, and must include a 500-word abstract, and a mandatory draft of the final poster.
The final date for poster submission is also September 15. Both paper and poster presenters are required to register for the conference for presenting their work, the release added.
